Something is not working. It's time for churches to get over the cruise-ship mentality of being a program provider, and reconnect with the true message and mission of Jesus: to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, and freedom to the oppressed. In Change the World, Pastor Mike Slaughter presents seven choices that pastors must make as they consider their congregations and the future ministry of the church. Will you step out in courage to serve the world that Jesus came to save?

Clearly, something is not working. Despite the churchs place of prominence in American culture and the ubiquity of the church in every American town, misconceptions about the faith of Jesus Christ run rampant today. Christians are known more for exclusivity than for love, more for pot lucks than for solving world hunger. Its time for churches to get over the cruise-ship mentality of being a program-provider, and reconnect with the true message and mission of Jesus: to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, and freedom to the oppressed. The church is called to be a mission outpost, living out Christs ideals in todays world. Slaughter presents seven choices pastors must make as they consider the future of their congregations. Will you focus on building disciples or tallying decisions? Will you multiply your impact or expand your facilities? Will you step out in courage or comply with the status quo? Your answers to these and other questions determine how your church will focus its time, its energy, and its budget to work for real change in a hurting world.

It is a message the congregation needs to hear and heed. Mike has written a challenging and insightful book that I pray will help bring a revival of Wesleyan holiness and Christian action to the Church and to the world.
Ginny5 Stars Out Of 5August 1, 2010GinnyI have read this book and am looking forward to working on a book study in our church using this book to hopefully get our congregation up and moving. What an inspiration. If we can do a portion of what they are doing I will be happy.
